The design of Robina 160 evolved from an extrusion of a narrow, complex and irregular site, coupled together with the client’s desire to create a landmark building.
Climatic responsiveness has been integrated into the design with office floors taking advantage of the potential cross flow of natural ventilation using operable clearstory windows.
Generous, covered outdoor terraces wrap around the ground floor retail space substantially increasing the trading floor area. Computer modeling used during the design process ensured that solar orientation and screening devices were effective in controlling sunlight penetration and heat gain.
